Grace Episcopal Church at 6 Elizabeth St. Utica, NY. - Grace Church was organized as a parish in 1838. The first church was a frame building located at the corner of Broadway and Columbia streets. About twenty years later, the current site was purchased by Alfred Munson and given to the parish for “the new church.” With Mr. Munson’s financial backing, Richard Upjohn, architect of Trinity Church, NYC, was engaged to design the present building. Grace Church was designed by R. Upjohn, who completed the nave in 1860. The steeple was added in 1870 by Upjohn's son, Richard M Upjohn. It was rebuilt in 1933 by grandson Hobart B. Upjohn. The church has been perceived as the center of downtown Utica since its founding and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.
